Discuss with doctor. ...Read more

Spleen sizes also vary quite a lot, but good to keep an eye on it. ...Read more

A CT scan shows several prominent peripancreatic lymph nodes and mildly prominent para-aortic lymph nodes. What does this mean?
Probably nothing: Taken by itself, out of context, this phrase from a ct report means nothing. But medicine, and your health, do not exist out of context, and this forum is not a good place to ask this question.

With the normal bloodwork and ultrasound, i would not expect that you would need a biopsy in the absence of other symptomatology. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
